The U.S. Postal Service's Financial Condition: A Primer

Date: September 22, 2014
Creator: Daniel J. Richardson
Description: This report discusses the significant financial challenges facing the U.S. Postal Service (USPS).

Since FY2011, the USPS has defaulted on $16.7 billion in payments to its Retiree Health Benefits Fund (RHBF). The agency reached its $15 billion borrowing limit in FY2012 and did not reduce its total debt in FY2013. In October 2012, the USPS bolstered its liquidity by withdrawing all of the cash from its competitive products fund. This fund has not been replenished since that time.
